My wife, a few summers ago, planted sunflowers in the alley behind our garage, which I couldn't HELP but think of as triffids that hadn't yet uprooted and started roaming the countryside searching for victims... I'm not sure if these flowers TRIED to attack someone in the alley, or if other folks thought they looked like potential alien plants, too, or if we just had some shithead kids who walked by and kicked them over just to be naughty---whatever the cause, these plants WENT DOWN...

Because I always saw them as monstrous, I felt like I needed to add just a bit of gore to the image. I tried to make it look like a crime scene photo. (Maybe there's something wrong with me...)

Mariah (the wife) was sad that her flowers were knocked down---but I wasn't ever really sure having these things near the house was a good idea. It doesn't matter which of us was right, though, because they're gone now...and to this day, she hasn't planted any new ones...
